I am a graduate student in rehabilitation counseling and need anyone who would to answer the following question: A teenage female client comes into your office. She admits to having sex often and with multiple partners. She says she is not on birth control but wants advice on that issue. If you advise her to take birth control are you advocating her promiscuity? Would you first promote abstinence to the client?.....Thanks for your responses

I don't think by talking about birth control you are necessarily advocating her promiscuity. I think there are two issues here: the first is that she needs to protect herself, regardless of the number of partners she has; the second is the fact that she is promiscous. I don't know how to solve the promiscouity problem, but do talk to her about protection/birth control/std's--the whole schpeel.
hope it helps.

The only ethical way is to lay out the choice consequence thing. Give the facts figures,pictures,what ever sales tools you can. It is tough because it will never happen to me attitiude. Have her tested for clymedia, I think that is how you spell it, the numbers are insane for teenage girls, and it leads to the inability to have children, maybe that will influence her

I would look for possible sex addiction. This is about feeling out of control, and usually for teenage girls it is about looking for love. Also the possibility of sexual abuse in her background. Shouldnt you look for these?
